Serves 6

Flaxseed Buns

Cutting out bread but really fancy a roll? These are perfect. Really simple to make and only take 20 minutes to bake.


  • 150g ground flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp rock salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp mixed herbs
  • 3 medium eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or fresh lemon juice)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp water


  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flaxseed, bicarb, salt, pepper, and mixed herbs.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Leave to thicken for 5 minutes.
  • Take 4 tbsp of batter and shape into a bun in your hands. If the mixture is quite wet, don’t worry.
  • Place each bun on the prepared baking tray, leaving a good space between them all. It should make around 6. You want the buns around 1 cm thick, so you can gently press on them if you need to shape them smaller.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack. Slice and fill. Enjoy!
